Age: 28 - B/T: R/R
Hard-throwing righty now fully recovered from 2009 Tommy John rightfully makes major league team now but Drew Storen’s return may force the Nationals to exercise his minor league option due to roster crunch.
Age: 29 - B/T: L/L
Former starter will serve as a long man but could likely get regular use even if not in long-relief situations.
Age: 26 - B/T: R/L
A future starter, Detwiler will serve as a long reliever but will be kept mostly on a starter’s schedule. Most likely candidate to start in case of emergency and whenever another starter is needed.

Age: 24 - B/T: R/R
A solid rookie season in the books and drawing raves for his work with the pitchers this spring, the Nationals hope for more of the same after a turbulent winter for Ramos.
26 Jesus Flores
Age: 27 - B/T: R/R
